I fear this is getting wildly out of hand.

I have no issue whatsoever with anything I say being challenged. In past encounters I have not appreciated the manner in which you have written. I did not appreciate the fact that you said I had made a supremacist claim, as I did no such thing. I very much did not appreciate the fact that you continued to believe that that is what I had done after I clearly said I had picked a figure out of thin air.

If you had responded to my post simply stating that the figure was incorrect, I would have had no issue whatsoever. I hope we can move on from this and have no continuing bad blood. I believe I have responded badly to assertive posts by you, and for that I apologise.

Finally, if you are aware of someone who has received high fees from Mr Murray for using exactly the same language as I used, could you please forward me his billing address?!

It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One
Happy new year one and all xxx

The Vice Closes
Congratulations to the Scotland team tonight for a great result, looked like a goal would never come due to that intrepid crossbar but it’s great to see a Scotland side look as accomplished as we have recently. Just think where we’d be if we’d kept our concentration in the last minute against England!

”Now on what is objectionable to others: songs that are inward celebrating might cause offence to others but they are the ones taking offence, it is not being offered to or aimed at them. It is something intolerant in them that sparks the offence taken.”

By your criteria above, it would be perfectly acceptable for a group of fans to turn up at a football ground singing “Ode to Isis” and as long as it was inward looking, it would be the fault of the rest of the crowd if they were offended. 

I usually read your posts with interest and respect your views, but I find this stance ridiculous. 

Time for Scots Government to Take Bull by the Horns
Upthehoops, thanks for your response. I’ve recognised my club’s weaknesses on here many times, but the justification given for support of clubs in Europe here is always that they are the Scottish representatives, which Rangers were. You can’t claim (and I don’t mean you particularly) to support the Scottish representatives but then exclude some because they aren’t financially well managed. Rangers mk II have been run at a loss but have broken no rules, and are not the first club in Scotland or in Europe to have been run at a loss. Again, I have been a vocal critic on here of the Rangers administration, but if people are on here claiming to support the Scottish representatives but making an exception for Rangers then I say they are hypocrites. 

Time for Scots Government to Take Bull by the Horns
Jimbo you were not as vocal in your support for Scottish representation in Europe when Rangers were (briefly) involved. Neither was anyone else here, somewhat disappointingly.
